The JT-60U electron cyclotron heating (ECH) system injects a millimeter wave at 110 GHz into the JT-60U plasma, and heats the plasma or drives a current locally to enhance the confinement performance of the JT-60U plasma. The ECH system of high power gyrotrons, transmission lines and antenna that launch millimeter wave beams toward the plasma. On the long pulse injection, one of the most important purposes is to prevent arcing in the transmission lines and to transmit millimeter wave beams efficiently. This report describes the problems occurred in a long pulse injection test (0.5 MW, 30 s), e.g., increase in released gas, temperature rise of the transmission line and an arcing at the vacuum window during the conditioning process. It also describes measures for the problems, e.g., improvements in vacuum pumping system, cooling system, and arc detector and introduction of the new dummy road system.
